Another way to help spot fake merchandise is to address the important issue of counterfeit certificates. IEC Conformity Assessment Systems are unique in that they contain online databases, which allow immediate verification of the originally issued “Certificates of Conformity” and/or “Testing Certificates”. This means that if the certificates cannot be found on these databases, they are not authentic.
